About A Room in the Garden
A Room in the Garden is a family run business born from the desire to deliver beautiful, practical and affordable garden buildings.
We design, build and install high-quality bespoke garden offices, summer houses, garden guest rooms and storage rooms. All our garden rooms are fully insulated, beautifully finished and offer our clients a great all-year-round space.
Over the time we became an expert in unique solutions, tight spaces and impossible projects. Our approach and highly skilled team allows us to realise even the most challenging builds.
Ivana and Lukas
It all started with those two.
Ivana, with a Fashion Degree from University of Florence, and Lukas, with Architecture Degree from Wroclaw Univeristy of Science and Technology.
They met together in 2015, fall in love and after refurbishing their own space they decided to open ‘A Room in the Garden’, ditching a marketing company they run before.
Although Lukas designs most of the garden buildings, Ivana breaks his simple lines and add a spark of Italian flair.

A Room in the Garden Story
It all started on a beautiful warm evening with a glass of wine and a very innocent joke in June 2017.
And now here we are! That joke became a dream. The dream became reality. And few years down the line we still look at this little story and find it amazing how one little thing can change so much.
So, my husband and I live in a lovely flat in Brighton and Hove, East Sussex. Although it’s not very common for a first-floor flat, we have a decent size garden. Unfortunately, for very long time we denied it care and attention. Grass kept growing higher, and the small shed sitting in the corner was so full of stuff that we gave up even getting things out of it! The garden was so unloved that we rarely used it.
Until one day, we put our hearts into it and started our ‘grand garden design’.
After clearing the garden, which revealed its real size, we could see how we could better use the available space. It was now time to search for a new shed. We browsed the internet to see what was out there, but we could not really find what we were looking for. Too small, too big. Not the right shape. If only it had the roof this way or the doors opened that way… Nothing seemed to answer all our needs and wants.
We decided to take the matter into our hands and design our own garden storage room! Lukas’ Architecture studies and construction experience became very handy when it was time to jot down our ideas. My fashion university and practicality was helpful too.
We went through so many different ideas. We changed the size, shape, location, materials… but in the end, we designed our own perfect storage room! Exactly what we needed and exactly how we wanted it. No compromise was needed! Our own room in the garden!
And then it was time to build it! So we turned into our great team of builders who were refurbishing our flat at this time, and asked them if they can do it.
We have helped a lot, and were so pleased with the result, and we had so much fun doing it, that one evening, while sitting on our new decking, admiring our ‘grand garden design’, Lukas said, “We should quit everything and start a shed company – A Room in the Garden – bespoke garden offices and summer houses.”
A few seconds of silence followed. Then we looked each other in the eyes. Something just felt right about it. “Yes. I think we should!”
And here we are! A Room in the Garden was born!
